Half Term Quizzes:
The Romans in Britain
This half-term we are going to find out about the Romans and what changed when they came to the British Isles. Rome was founded in 753BC by its first king, Romulus. It grew into a rich and powerful city during the next few hundred years. Check these BBC links out for more fun facts. In 54-55BC Julius Caesar tried to invade what is now called the UK but he failed. However, in AD43 a big Roman army landed on the beaches in Kent. Over the next year it battled inland, storming through hillforts and conquering anyone who stood in their way! The Romans changed Britain forever and we can still see what they left behind at places like Wall near Lichfield. Why not go and take a look around one day? It is free to get in and only a short distance from Lichfield!

Roman Soldiers were well trained and tough!
